Jan 30, 2018

Business leaders, educators, and workforce training officials are gathering today for the third Kentucky Workforce Summit.  The day- long event is coordinated by the state chamber of commerce.  Kentucky Workforce Center Director Beth Davisson says the private sector is rolling out a statewide talent pipeline management program.

For more than a decade, Kentucky’s largest business association has hosted a state legislative preview conference.  Tuesday’s event in Lexington covered most hot button items for the 2018 general assembly session.

Kentucky Chamber of Commerce President Dave Adkisson believes the budgetary challenges facing state lawmakers over the next three months could be the toughest in decades.

The veteran business leader says it could even outdistance the 2008 recession, because there will be no federal bailout support this time.

The 2016 session of the Kentucky General Assembly begins on January 5th.  Kentucky Chamber of Commerce president and CEO Dave Adkisson joined Tom Martin for a look at the business organization’s top priorities for the 2016 session.
